The Yanks have been involved in a bullish channel dating back to May 8; You will notice a succession of higher highs and lower lows. In the nearest terms, New York has experienced a bit of regression, but that was supported by the mean and followed with sustained success. I like the Yankees to have at least one more day’s worth of steam in this rally.
I started looking at this game as a potential NYY ML, but the Padres are the sixth best offense by team wOBA over the last seven days (.372), and Tanaka in Yankee Stadium is a combination that’s prone to homers. Although Tanaka has pitched his best ball in the Bronx, I think the clear mismatch here is the hot-hitting Yankees versus a Padres staff putting too many runners on and struggling to get outs.
I haven’t placed bets yet because of the weather, so please be careful. It’s likely that I pull this play off board depending on the weather. If there is any delay or precipitation it would be wise to avoid.
